Invisible gear hinge – a 180° fit for railway doors

The EMKA 1007 program concealed gear hinge has multiple applications - from railway carriages to cupboard doors.

The new EMKA 1007 program concealed gear hinge – often referred to in the industry as ‘SOSS’ type – is a hidden 180° opening unit, mounted within the width thickness of the doors, with a minimum dimension of 33mm.

Smooth sliding action and improved appearance are also offered by this rugged hinge, which is said to be equally at home in railway carriages or offices, on passenger doors or cupboard doors – where, being hidden, it is also resistant to vandalism.

The elegant design of this 1007 hinge is made possible by the integration of polyamide 66 GF50, POM and PTFE high-specification plastics, combined with plated zinc die, steel and stainless steel components.

“By combining the best in material technology and engineering design, EMKA has succeeded in presenting a high performing hinge for the public rail arena, which also closes away out of sight and is thus vandal resistant,” states the company.

The 1007 is included in the EMKA Railway Industry catalogue, available at: www.emkablog.co.uk/2018-railway-catalogue.
